Award-winning Ghanaian gospel musician Bernice Offei, is advising her colleagues that they are not called to receive awards but to do the will of God.
Entertainment critics and some veteran gospel musicians are calling on Vodafone Ghana Music Awards to honour or award the old gospel musicians because they have been sidelined over the years.
Bernice Offei who was a guest on Hitz FM’s This Is Gospel hosted Franky 5 advised her colleagues to focus on winning souls than awards.
“I think that we are not called so much to come and receive awards but to do what God has called us to do. And when you do it, at the right time God will give the reward. If you are looking for the reward, I tell you, it may never come,” she said.
She also revealed that you can get the awards here but lose heaven which is the ultimate.
“I appreciate the fact that as human as we are, sometimes those things seem you have been cheated on something, it can be painful. That is not what is going to take you to heaven anyway. You can get the awards here and go to hell,” she warned.
Bernice Offei won best female vocalist and song writer of the year with her song “Life” in 2009 at Ghana Music Awards.
